Temple University's Morgan hall raises the skyline of North Philadelphia as it inches closer and closer to opening day. The project will surely help user in a new age of vitality to the North Broad street corridor, pushing limits of the "unexpected" in North Philadelphia.
The $174 million, 736,000 square foot apartment complex features a beautifully understated (except for its hight) contemporary 27 story tower joined by a ten story dorm on the south end designed by MGA Partners. The two dorms will contain at least 1,200 beds in 4-person suites and 20 singles. There will also be dining facilities and new retail dining space in a separate building on North Broad Street and a courtyard in the middle of the complex. The project is set to open July 2013.
